The class meets weekly and features engineering alumni and regional entrepreneurs who have had recent major success from which students can learn. Holder of the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) Chair in computational solid mechanics, Horstemeyer has researched a helmet design that will help prevent concussions.
